Science fiction writers leave the impression that once mankind is forced to grow food underground, our diets will quickly be reduced to tasteless goo. Nobody told that to the entrepreneurs behind Growing Underground, who have transformed a series of abandoned World War II bomb shelters 100 feet underneath southwest London into the world’s largest underground farm. Beneath the purplish glow of banks of LED lights, the enterprise produces delicate, pesticide-free hydroponic produce, such as pea shoots and rocket, which can move from tunnel to table any day of the year in just hours.
